Obamacare delays, he’s had a few

Obamacare delays, he’s had a few

He’ll do it his way

At what point does the public truly feel the full pain of Obamacare?

It’s not a legal issue, it’s just the whim of the administration built around the election cycle.

From the Forbes Article posted below:

The Constitution authorizes the President to propose and veto legislation. It does not authorize him to change existing laws. The changes Mr. Obama ordered in Obamacare, therefore, are unconstitutional. This means that he does not accept some of the limitations that the Constitution places on his actions. We cannot know at this point what limitations, if any, he does accept…
The main responsibility the Constitution assigns to the President is to faithfully execute the Laws.

Because of Obama’s contempt for the other two branches of gov’t and for the Constitutional limitations placed on his authority then Impeachment IS in order, as I read the law.

    It is obvious that the House OUGHT to impeach Obama for dereliction of duty and for violating his oath of office.

    Unfortunately, we have a House of Cowards, instead of a House of Representatives.

    They don’t want to be accused of “Political Theater” given that the Senate is in Democrat control, and they will most likely not convict on impeachment. This doesn’t abrogate their responsibility to do the right thing, in spite of the political cost of being hounded by media and the opposition party.

    Until WE clean OUR House, this will continue as the status quo. WE must be the ones to put in people of moral courage and integrity. Vote NO on any incumbent who has spent more than 2 terms in office. We need a constant supply of fresh faces and ideas so that corruption can not take root anymore.

    Let’s pass an immigration bill and see how Obama waives it’s mandates.

    We are in the most significant constitutional crisis since the civil war, and there is no push-back from the Republicans. This is devastating.

They’re just waiting to get to that Glorious World of Next Tuesday when they can cue the big orchestral finish and have a theme for his Presidential Library and Reeducation Center: “The record shows, I took the blows…”

Geez. That’s real money.

It is also a dead-bang crime. The Other McCain said that November is not an election; it’s a pre-impeachment vote.

I’d appreciate it if someone who’s read the ACA (who might that be?) could tell us whether the President (or more accurately, the Secretary of HHS) has the discretion built into the law to put back deadlines.

Some laws allow that. I don’t know whether the ACA does, and my own attempts to read it to find such a provision are pointless — the text is so legalistic, and so filled with pointers to other laws, amendments and such that I can’t find hardly anything.

Does the ACA (or some other controlling law) allow the President to put back a deadline that’s written into the ACA?

    The moonbattery is actually a good source for answers to your question, Doc.

    There is a law, passed by Congress some decades ago in the explosion of the regulatory state, giving the Executive a (too) broad discretion in implementing a law, consistent with its purpose. Wish I could recall the name, but my names curse prevents.

    Anyhow, this is used as both a sword and shield by the moonbats who apologize for Pres. ScamWOW’s lawlessness. To them, so long as whatever he is doing “furthers” ObamaDoggle, he has carte blanc. This is, of course, simply false, and there certainly is no application where “furthering” is rank politics, as these delays have been and every waiver I can think of has been.

    I tried to understand a lefty legal screed purporting to defend Obama’s wholesale rewritings of existing law, but it was pretty vague and evasive, plus I’m not lawyer. The essential point hung on the idea of Obamacare as a tax rather than a law, allowing Obama the leeway to make the changes we’ve seen. It read like Ikea assembly instructions and smelled like horseshit to me.

Doing his best to keep Democrats in power. Obama would strangle BO to death in front of his children if it helped him keep the Senate. He would send the IRS to your house with a proctoscope without thinking twice.

So, Obamacare is a tax (thank you very much, Mr. Roberts), which Obama can change at will. Unless this precedent is challenged (which both parties ought to do with all their might), Obama can change the income tax rates on a whim, and direct the IRS to begin charging those rates.

Forget Obamacare (I wish we could), this administration has generated constitutional crisis after constitutional crisis with the tacit endorsement of the judicial and legislative branches. Are there any leaders with backbone willing to stand up to this thuggish behavior? (Crickets)

Obama has the typical Muslim disdain for man made law. So, he doesn’t have to abide by it. He can make it be what he wants to be cuz, after all, it’s not divine law; it’s just man made.

How can we get this guy out of our misery?

Let’s see what happens after November. Right now anything attempted in the House is an exercise in futility because of the strangehold Reid has on the Senate.

    Henry Hawkins in reply to NC Mountain Girl. | February 11, 2014 at 4:19 pm

    This. Obama’s remaining time hinges on the Senate numbers. Meanwhile, I’ll be at the same time dreaming of a new Senate majority leader and nightmaring over which GOP-er that might be.

I blame the Pansy Party as much as the Democrats and the little smug Emperor-wannabe. The government is being run by two competing crime families operating in a symbiotic relationship… filling each other’s purses, defrauding the citizens.

Every time I see a tiny box of crackers or cereal for $4. and the price of meat, fruit, etc. I hate the denizens of the District of Corruption even more.

Signed, no longer Republican, but still a Tea Party Conservative.

I will not vote for a CINO/RINO ever again.
